College and Career for All

Across Jackson and Josephine Counties, the high school graduation rate is 67%. This means that a third of our youth are at high risk for life long poverty. Oregon has the worst four year high school graduation rate in the nation and we are below the state average.

As Southern Oregon Success works to increase the success of our youth in transitioning from high school to post secondary training and careers, we will be tracking the following metrics:

  • High School Graduation Rate: 67.4%*
  • Number of college level course in HS: Goal is 3+ (baseline data to be determined)
  • National Career Readiness Certificate: 613 (as of 3/1/14)
  • 1st Year College Enrollment : 53%*
  • 2nd year college persistence: 41%*approximately

*= (2008-2009 cohort of 9th graders, data currently includes Klamath
